Let's Go to the Bitch

Yes, that's right, the Blue Bitch.....

No, we're not talking about a sad dog, we're talking about a great winter-time streamer - a blue, woolley-bugger style deal, that's killer in the cold months. It has all the qualities of a good streamer fly - easy to tie, durable, bulky, shimmery, lively and ugly. It pushes water when stripped.

There it is, in all its glory.............the Blue Bitch, the best bitch you'll ever meet and fish with. The recipe:

Thread: Black

Hook: Size 2 - 8 3XL Streamer

Bead: Gold - size to match hook

Weight: Lead wire

Tail: Royal blue marabou

Body: Royal blue SLF - twist in a loop and then wrap up shank to gold bead.

Let 'er rip. Fish it dead-drift, swing it, strip it.

Have fun, and protect those eyes!
